Hello, it's me - The Brain.

0:00:030:00:05

These are the kind of challenges

0:00:050:00:07

our team will face today.

0:00:070:00:08

Have a go at home.

0:00:080:00:10

Solve the riddle.

0:00:120:00:13

Try one more.

0:00:190:00:21

What number plate do you see?

0:00:230:00:25

I'll relieve your anxiety by giving you the answers

0:00:300:00:33

at the end of the show.

0:00:330:00:34

Now, let's see if four brains are better than one.

0:00:340:00:37

It's Beat The Brain.

0:00:370:00:39

Please meet the man who runs rings around other quiz show presenters.

0:00:570:01:01

It's John Craven.

0:01:010:01:03

Well, thank you very much. Hello, welcome to Beat The Brain.

0:01:030:01:06

Now, depending on what sort of mood The Brain is in,

0:01:060:01:09

you may feel as if you've run a mental marathon

0:01:090:01:12

by the end of today's show.

0:01:120:01:13

So, give us a clue. Brain, what kind of mood are you in?

0:01:130:01:16

A fierce one today, Johnny. A fierce one.

0:01:160:01:19

I'm going to leave everyone breathless.

0:01:190:01:21

Well, is that an empty threat? I've got a feeling

0:01:210:01:23

that our team today are going to run rings around her.

0:01:230:01:26

Please introduce yourselves.

0:01:260:01:28

Hi, I'm Chris, and I've been an air traffic controller for 18 months.

0:01:280:01:32

I'm Shaun, and I've been an air traffic controller for six years.

0:01:320:01:35

I'm James, and I've been an air traffic controller

0:01:350:01:37

for two and a half years.

0:01:370:01:38

Hi, I'm Wes. I'm the team captain,

0:01:380:01:40

and I've been an air traffic controller for 12 years.

0:01:400:01:42

Well, welcome, everybody.

0:01:420:01:44

And, Wes, as team captain, what team name have you chosen?

0:01:440:01:47

-Our team name is No Direction.

-And why on earth is that?

0:01:470:01:50

Well, as air traffic controllers,

0:01:500:01:52

we're used to giving aircraft direction.

0:01:520:01:54

Shaun, such a huge fan of the boy band,

0:01:540:01:56

so he demanded that we incorporate that into our name,

0:01:560:01:59

and we have come up with No Direction.

0:01:590:02:00

Air traffic controllers, are you ready to take off?

0:02:000:02:02

ALL: We are.

0:02:020:02:04

Well, this is how it works.

0:02:040:02:05

The show's Brain is divided into six Zones.

0:02:050:02:08

Now, The Brain will select four of those six Zones

0:02:140:02:17

for you to play today.

0:02:170:02:18

And, Wes, as the team captain, you must decide

0:02:180:02:21

which member of your team will perform best

0:02:210:02:23

in each of those Zones. OK?

0:02:230:02:25

You will face a series of questions in our Zone

0:02:250:02:27

with each correct answer adding three seconds

0:02:270:02:30

to what we call the Brain Bank.

0:02:300:02:32

And the more time you build up,

0:02:320:02:33

the more chance you have of beating The Brain in today's final

0:02:330:02:36

and walking away with a jackpot of £3,000.

0:02:360:02:40

So, No Direction, it's chocks away. OK?

0:02:400:02:43

Let's find out what the first Zone is and who will be facing it.

0:02:430:02:48

Brain, the Zone, please.

0:02:480:02:50

Orientation, it is, Wes.

0:02:550:02:57

So who do you reckon is going to be best at that?

0:02:570:03:00

I think...I think I'd like to take this one as the first hit.

0:03:000:03:05

-Set the standard high.

-What do you think?

-If you feel confident.

0:03:050:03:07

-I think we need to save you just in case...

-Save me?

0:03:070:03:10

No, we need to save Shaun in case Multitasking comes up.

0:03:100:03:14

-I'll take this one, John.

-OK, captain first, then.

0:03:140:03:17

Come and join me, Wes.

0:03:170:03:18

-So, how long have you been a controller?

-12 years.

-Wow!

0:03:230:03:25

What made you decide to go in for that, then?

0:03:250:03:27

-They wouldn't take me as a pilot.

-Oh, dear.

-No.

0:03:270:03:30

Why...why wouldn't they take you?

0:03:300:03:32

Because I had hay fever. It's always the way, honestly, but then...

0:03:320:03:35

-Always some small, little medical reason.

-Yeah.

-Yeah.

0:03:350:03:37

Yeah, of course, there are no pilots out there with hay fever.

0:03:370:03:40

-No, of course not.

-And not that I'm bitter.

0:03:400:03:42

-Well, all the very best as we play the first Zone.

-Thank you very much.

0:03:420:03:45

Brain, what is the first game, please?

0:03:450:03:48

Hello, captain Wes.

0:03:480:03:49

-Hello, Brain.

-I like your bowtie.

-Thank you very much.

0:03:490:03:52

-What's the pattern?

-It's cats and fish.

0:03:520:03:55

Oh, you're cute.

0:03:550:03:56

-Are you ready for liftoff?

-I am.

-Here's your first game.

0:03:560:03:59

Follow the car's journey and identify in which direction it ends up facing.

0:04:030:04:08

To help you out, have a trial run.

0:04:080:04:10

Turn left.

0:04:140:04:15

Turn right.

0:04:170:04:18

Turn left.

0:04:180:04:19

-Which direction...

-West.

-..No Direction?

0:04:210:04:23

HE LAUGHS

0:04:230:04:25

West, you're saying. Let's have a look.

0:04:250:04:28

You are absolutely correct.

0:04:280:04:29

OK, Brain, let's play the game.

0:04:290:04:31

-Captain Wes, please remember, I can only accept your first answer.

-OK.

0:04:310:04:36

And every correct answer will add three seconds to your Brain Bank.

0:04:360:04:40

Your game starts now.

0:04:400:04:41

Turn left.

0:04:450:04:46

Turn left.

0:04:470:04:49

U-turn.

0:04:490:04:51

-North.

-North, you're saying. Are you correct?

0:04:510:04:55

You are indeed. Well done, Wes. On to the next one, please.

0:04:550:04:58

U-turn.

0:05:020:05:04

U-turn.

0:05:040:05:06

Turn left.

0:05:060:05:08

Turn left.

0:05:080:05:10

-South.

-South, you're saying now. Is that right?

0:05:100:05:13

It is, yes. Well done.

0:05:130:05:14

Two out of three. One more to go.

0:05:140:05:16

Turn left.

0:05:190:05:21

Turn left.

0:05:220:05:24

Turn left.

0:05:240:05:26

U-turn.

0:05:260:05:28

-West.

-West, you're saying.

0:05:280:05:29

You are correct. Well, full house.

0:05:300:05:32

You weren't put off by that quick U-turn at the end?

0:05:320:05:34

No, they were tricky. Those U-turns can really throw you,

0:05:340:05:36

especially the east-west direction.

0:05:360:05:38

Yeah, I must admit - I got the wrong answer on that one.

0:05:380:05:40

Let's find out what game two has in store for you.

0:05:400:05:43

Maybe I was a little too kind there.

0:05:430:05:45

Here's your second game.

0:05:450:05:47

Captain Wes, which wheel matches the one on the left?

0:05:490:05:53

To get your eye in, you can have a trial run.

0:05:530:05:55

A, B, C or D?

0:05:580:06:00

-A.

-A, you're saying.

0:06:000:06:02

Let's see if you're right. You are indeed. Yeah.

0:06:020:06:05

-No problems there so far.

-That's tricky.

0:06:050:06:06

-That is a trickier one, isn't it?

-That's a tricky one, yeah.

-Yeah.

0:06:060:06:09

-Let's see how you do, cos we're ready to play?

-Yes.

-Off we go.

0:06:090:06:13

You have a maximum of 45 seconds to answer three questions.

0:06:130:06:16

Please remember, I can only accept your first answer.

0:06:160:06:20

Your game starts now.

0:06:200:06:21

-B.

-Let's see if you're right.

0:06:270:06:29

You are, yeah. Next one.

0:06:290:06:31

B.

0:06:350:06:38

Yes, well done.

0:06:380:06:39

25 seconds to go.

0:06:410:06:43

15 seconds.

0:06:520:06:53

-C.

-C, you are saying. Is that correct?

0:06:580:07:00

Yes, it is, yeah.

0:07:000:07:02

Maximum seconds, I make that. So, what do you think, Brain?

0:07:020:07:05

Captain Wes, I thought you liked me.

0:07:050:07:08

That was a clean sweep.

0:07:080:07:10

If you keep this up, my jackpot will be in jeopardy.

0:07:100:07:13

Wes, you added 18 seconds in that Zone.

0:07:130:07:16

This means, in total, No Direction have 18 seconds

0:07:160:07:20

in their Brain Bank.

0:07:200:07:22

-What a good start!

-Thank you.

-Nice to meet you.

-Thanks, John.

0:07:220:07:25

So, now it's time to find out our next Zone, please,

0:07:250:07:28

and who is going to take it on.

0:07:280:07:30

Brain, the Zone, please.

0:07:300:07:31

Language, it is. So, Wes, who are you selecting for the Language Zone?

0:07:360:07:39

Right, it's a difficult one, this,

0:07:390:07:41

because none of us are really language-orientated.

0:07:410:07:45

-Captain's decision.

-OK, let's go. Erm...

0:07:450:07:47

-..Shaun.

-OK.

-Come and join me, Shaun in the Language Zone.

0:07:490:07:52

-How are you doing?

-Yeah, not too bad. Thank you.

0:07:550:07:57

-He gave you a very good start, didn't he?

-He did.

0:07:570:07:59

-He set the bar high.

-Didn't he? No pressure.

0:07:590:08:01

No, and with a topic like Language as well.

0:08:010:08:04

What made you become an air traffic controller, then?

0:08:040:08:06

I enjoy being mentally challenged. It keeps you on your toes, so...

0:08:060:08:09

Yeah, you got to really be very logistical, haven't you?

0:08:090:08:12

That's correct. Yeah, there's a lot of set skills that...

0:08:120:08:14

And there is language involved, isn't there?

0:08:140:08:16

-You do have to speak to people.

-Yeah, you speak to each other.

0:08:160:08:19

Speak to the pilots, make sure they can understand what you're saying.

0:08:190:08:22

-Yeah, indeed.

-So, are you ready to play?

-Ready.

0:08:220:08:24

Well, let's play the Language Zone.

0:08:240:08:26

Brain, please, reveal the first game.

0:08:260:08:28

-Hello, Shaun.

-Hello, Brain.

0:08:280:08:30

This is your first game.

0:08:300:08:32

Use one letter from each column to create a word.

0:08:350:08:38

The clue will help you find it.

0:08:380:08:40

To give you some practice, Shaun, have a trial run.

0:08:400:08:43

It's one letter from each column to make...

0:08:470:08:49

Drum.

0:08:490:08:51

-I think there's 'drum' in there.

-Drum. Let's have a look and see.

0:08:510:08:54

Yes, you're right. Yeah.

0:08:540:08:57

-So, not too hard...

-Whoa.

-..to start with for you.

0:08:570:08:59

-We shall see if they're all...

-We shall see.

0:08:590:09:01

Well, let's see what hidden words

0:09:010:09:03

we have in store for you as we play the game.

0:09:030:09:06

You have 45 seconds to answer three questions correctly.

0:09:060:09:09

But, please remember, I can only accept your first answer.

0:09:090:09:13

Your game starts now.

0:09:130:09:14

-Pink.

-Pink, you're saying.

0:09:210:09:23

Well done, yes. Well done.

0:09:230:09:25

35 seconds left.

0:09:250:09:26

-Boot.

-Boot.

0:09:290:09:31

Yeah, very good. Very quick.

0:09:310:09:33

20 seconds left.

0:09:390:09:40

Ten seconds.

0:09:500:09:52

-Five. Put in a guess?

-I can't see it.

0:09:550:09:57

-An extra letter in there, wasn't there?

-Yeah, there is.

0:09:570:10:00

-Time's out.

-Can't see it.

-Let's reveal what the answer is.

0:10:000:10:04

It's 'dress'.

0:10:040:10:06

It's top, bottom, top, bottom.

0:10:060:10:07

Now, you can see it, can't you? Yes.

0:10:070:10:09

Bad luck, but in a Zone that you didn't particularly want,

0:10:090:10:12

you're doing very well so far. OK, so let's see how you do in game two.

0:10:120:10:16

-I got you there, Shaun.

-You did.

0:10:170:10:19

Here's your second game.

0:10:190:10:20

What word is missing from all three others?

0:10:230:10:26

Have a trial run.

0:10:260:10:28

Any ideas?

0:10:400:10:42

No.

0:10:420:10:44

I'm seeing words,

0:10:440:10:45

but not necessarily a three-letter word that's...

0:10:450:10:48

I see 'badge' or...

0:10:560:10:57

Let me give you a clue cos I think I've got it.

0:10:570:11:00

It starts with R.

0:11:000:11:01

-Rid.

-Rid.

0:11:010:11:02

Yes, rid.

0:11:020:11:04

-Let's have a look and see.

-I saw 'corridor', but...

-Correct.

0:11:040:11:07

-Are you ready to play, Shaun?

-We'll give it a go.

-OK.

0:11:080:11:11

Off we go, please.

0:11:110:11:13

Shaun, you can have as many guesses as you like, but I will not move on

0:11:130:11:17

to the next question until you give me the correct answer

0:11:170:11:20

or you can pass.

0:11:200:11:21

You only have 45 seconds to answer three questions.

0:11:210:11:24

Your game starts now.

0:11:240:11:26

-The.

-The. Well done, yes. Next one. 30 seconds to go.

0:11:390:11:43

-Gin.

-Gin. Yes, well done. Last one.

0:11:460:11:50

-20 seconds.

-Out.

-Out.

0:11:520:11:55

-Yes! Well done, Shaun. Wow!

-Trial run helped.

0:11:550:11:57

-Big relief there for you, eh?

-Yeah, I was feeling the pressure

0:11:570:12:00

-about the trial run.

-That trial run really flummoxed you, didn't it?

0:12:000:12:03

-Yeah.

-But that is a very good score.

-Thank you.

-Isn't it, Brain?

0:12:030:12:07

-Were you teasing me, Shaun? You were so bad in the trial run.

-Thanks!

0:12:070:12:11

Every second counts in the final,

0:12:110:12:14

and that score has helped out a lot, Shaun.

0:12:140:12:16

You added 15 seconds in that Zone.

0:12:160:12:19

This means, in total, No Direction have 33 seconds

0:12:190:12:23

in their Brain Bank.

0:12:230:12:24

That is very good at halfway.

0:12:240:12:26

So, well done, Shaun. Please rejoin the other controllers.

0:12:260:12:31

Well, great going so far,

0:12:310:12:32

but remember, of course, the aim of the game, at this stage,

0:12:320:12:35

is to get as many right as you can and add as much time as you can

0:12:350:12:38

to your Brain Bank. The better you do,

0:12:380:12:40

the greater chance you have of beating The Brain in today's final

0:12:400:12:44

and winning a £3,000 jackpot.

0:12:440:12:46

And, at this stage, it's looking pretty good for you.

0:12:460:12:49

So, let's find out which Zone is next and who is going to take it on.

0:12:490:12:53

Brain, the Zone, please.

0:12:530:12:55

OK, Wes, who is going to be playing this?

0:13:010:13:03

Right, so we've got Observation, Logic and Memory

0:13:030:13:06

-and Multitasking to go.

-Yeah.

0:13:060:13:09

-I'm happy with Observation.

-Are you?

-Yeah.

-OK, in that case, then,

0:13:090:13:12

-we'll take James for Observation.

-James. Good.

0:13:120:13:15

Come and join me, then, in the Observation Zone.

0:13:150:13:17

-How are you?

-I'm good, thank you.

0:13:210:13:22

Now, you wear both hats, don't you,

0:13:220:13:24

-cos you're a traffic controller and you're also a pilot.

-I am, yes.

0:13:240:13:27

-So, I see...I see it from both sides.

-Yeah.

-Yeah.

0:13:270:13:29

-How old were you when...? Because you look pretty young now.

-Thanks.

0:13:290:13:32

-How old were you when you became a pilot?

-I was...

0:13:320:13:34

I started my first flying with the Air Cadets at age 15.

0:13:340:13:37

-Really?

-I flew my first aircraft solo at the age of 19.

0:13:370:13:40

-And that wasn't long after I had the driving licence.

-Oh, wow.

-So...

0:13:400:13:43

Yeah, a lot of responsibility.

0:13:430:13:45

Which do you prefer - flying or controlling the flyers?

0:13:450:13:48

I think I prefer to be flying,

0:13:480:13:50

but controlling, I do enjoy as well, so...

0:13:500:13:52

So, you're used to pressure.

0:13:520:13:54

So, let's see how you do when The Brain provides a bit for you.

0:13:540:13:57

So, let's play the Observation Zone.

0:13:570:14:00

Brain, the first game, please.

0:14:000:14:02

-Hello, James.

-Hello, Brain.

0:14:020:14:04

If you think you can beat me, wiggle your ears.

0:14:040:14:07

JOHN LAUGHS

0:14:070:14:09

-Oh, dear.

-How was that?

0:14:090:14:11

Very good! Here's your first game.

0:14:110:14:14

James, tell me which number plate you saw.

0:14:180:14:21

You can warm up with a trial run.

0:14:210:14:23

-Number five.

-Number five, you reckon? Was that correct?

0:14:340:14:38

-It was indeed.

-JAMES SIGHS

0:14:380:14:40

-So, we're going to play for real. Are you ready?

-Let's go.

0:14:400:14:43

OK, Brain, bring on the game.

0:14:430:14:45

Please remember, I can only accept your first answer.

0:14:450:14:48

Every correct answer will add three seconds to your Brain Bank.

0:14:480:14:51

Your game starts now.

0:14:510:14:53

-Number six.

-Number six, you're saying.

0:15:080:15:10

Is that correct?

0:15:100:15:12

It was. Well done. Next one, please.

0:15:120:15:14

-Number three.

-Number three, you think. Was that correct?

0:15:250:15:28

Yes, it was.

0:15:290:15:30

One more to go. You're doing incredibly well, James.

0:15:300:15:33

-Number two.

-Number two.

0:15:420:15:44

Well done. Went the opposite direction that time.

0:15:460:15:48

-That threw me.

-But that didn't put you off, did it? No.

0:15:480:15:51

So, well done. I mean, that is maximum seconds on that first game.

0:15:510:15:54

-Yeah, that was tough.

-What a game!

0:15:540:15:56

What a performance by this team.

0:15:560:15:58

Brain must be shuddering at this moment. Are you, Brain?

0:15:580:16:02

Absolutely. This is making me very, very sad indeed.

0:16:020:16:05

-Well, can we have the second game, please?

-Of course, you can, Johnny.

0:16:050:16:09

Tell me the order the balloons pop.

0:16:110:16:13

Have a trial run, James.

0:16:130:16:15

That was red, yellow, blue, I think.

0:16:230:16:26

Is that right?

0:16:260:16:28

Yes, it was indeed. Good. Excellent. Happy to play?

0:16:300:16:33

-Let's see what happens.

-See what happens. Off we go.

0:16:330:16:37

Remember, I can only accept your first answer, James.

0:16:370:16:42

Your game starts now.

0:16:420:16:44

-Blue, red, white.

-Blue, red, white. Is that right?

0:16:490:16:53

It is indeed. Next one, please.

0:16:530:16:55

White, yellow, red.

0:17:000:17:01

White, yellow, red.

0:17:010:17:04

-HE SIGHS

-No. White, red, yellow.

0:17:040:17:07

One more to go.

0:17:070:17:08

Blue, white, yellow, red.

0:17:140:17:16

Blue, white, yellow, red.

0:17:160:17:18

-Yes, well done. Yeah, that was a harder one...

-That was very tough.

0:17:180:17:21

-..because there were four going off there, weren't there?

-Yeah.

0:17:210:17:24

So, I reckon you can be pretty proud of your performance, James.

0:17:240:17:26

You held the banner high for the team. Didn't he, Brain?

0:17:260:17:30

Absolutely. James, you added 15 seconds in that Zone.

0:17:300:17:34

This means, in total, No Direction have 48 seconds

0:17:340:17:38

in their Brain Bank.

0:17:380:17:39

-Wow!

-Cheers.

-Very good indeed.

0:17:390:17:42

-Nice to see you, James, and all the very best.

-Thank you.

0:17:420:17:44

Well, Chris, you are our final player today,

0:17:440:17:46

so why don't you come and join me,

0:17:460:17:48

and we'll find out which of the three remaining Zones

0:17:480:17:51

you will be facing. So, come over here, please.

0:17:510:17:54

-Good to see you, Chris.

-Good to see you.

0:17:580:18:00

-Now, you look to be the youngest.

-I am the youngest.

-Yeah.

-Yeah.

0:18:000:18:03

And what made you become a controller, then?

0:18:030:18:06

It's something that I felt played to my skills.

0:18:060:18:08

A lot of people dream of being a pilot

0:18:080:18:09

and being involved with that sort of thing.

0:18:090:18:11

It's, again, a thing that I can do,

0:18:110:18:13

-so I wanted to get involved within...

-In aviation.

-Yeah.

0:18:130:18:15

-But you used to be a police officer, didn't you?

-I did. Briefly.

0:18:150:18:18

-Any special things happened to you then?

-Eh...

0:18:180:18:21

I might have accidentally pranged a police car

0:18:210:18:23

-into another police car.

-Really? Might have done?

0:18:230:18:26

Well, no, I did.

0:18:260:18:28

It didn't go down particularly well, and it was quite early on.

0:18:280:18:30

And it might have led to certain things happening afterwards

0:18:300:18:33

and why I'm not a policeman any more, maybe.

0:18:330:18:35

Oh, no. Well, I make out that you have Logic left

0:18:350:18:39

and Multitasking and Memory.

0:18:390:18:42

So, which one of those three would you like to get?

0:18:420:18:45

Erm...Multitasking, potentially.

0:18:450:18:49

Well, let's find out what The Brain has got for you.

0:18:490:18:52

Brain, a Zone, please.

0:18:520:18:54

-It's Logic. Well, that's not too bad, then, is it?

-Will do.

0:18:590:19:02

So, Brain, can we have the first game, please?

0:19:020:19:04

-Hello, Christopher.

-Hello.

-You are a bonny lad.

0:19:040:19:07

Thank you very much, Brain.

0:19:070:19:08

You're going to be nice to me and do very badly, aren't you?

0:19:080:19:13

-Yes.

-Good boy.

0:19:130:19:14

Here's your first game.

0:19:140:19:16

I will show you a series of four pictures,

0:19:190:19:21

and your challenge is to find the common link.

0:19:210:19:24

Christopher, have yourself a trial run.

0:19:240:19:26

Yeah, call out what you see there,

0:19:320:19:33

and you might find out the link.

0:19:330:19:35

Beach, apple, fur, palm.

0:19:350:19:41

Palm of the hand.

0:19:410:19:43

Tree. Types of tree. Palm tree...

0:19:460:19:49

Shall we find out what the answer is?

0:19:490:19:52

-It was tree. That's what you said, isn't it?

-It was.

-Well done.

0:19:520:19:54

So, you were pretty quick on that one.

0:19:540:19:56

It's not the easiest of games, this, I don't think.

0:19:560:19:59

No, I don't either.

0:19:590:20:00

So, let's see how you do. Please can we play the game?

0:20:000:20:03

You can have as many guesses as you like, Chris,

0:20:030:20:06

but I will not move on to the next question

0:20:060:20:08

until you give me the correct answer or you can pass.

0:20:080:20:11

You only have 45 seconds to answer three questions.

0:20:110:20:15

Your game starts now.

0:20:150:20:17

Pen, pocket, bread, kitchen.

0:20:190:20:22

Bin.

0:20:220:20:24

Wash...bread.

0:20:250:20:27

Basket.

0:20:270:20:29

-Ink.

-30 seconds left.

0:20:320:20:33

-You can pass this...

-Yeah, let's pass this one.

0:20:350:20:37

-Pass that one. All right. Knife.

-Oh, knife.

-Next one, please.

0:20:370:20:40

Polo, tee, rugby, dress.

0:20:400:20:45

Shirt. Rugby shirt, T-shirt.

0:20:450:20:47

Shirt. Well done. Last one.

0:20:470:20:50

Diamond, pearl, China, gold.

0:20:500:20:53

Five seconds left. Take a guess.

0:20:570:21:01

Type... Anniversaries.

0:21:010:21:02

Oh, you got it just in time.

0:21:020:21:05

-Anniversary. Well done.

-Thank you.

0:21:050:21:06

So, that is two out of three.

0:21:060:21:08

I'm happy with that.

0:21:080:21:10

-A lot of people, including me, struggle with that game.

-Yeah.

0:21:100:21:14

So, I think you did very well

0:21:140:21:15

especially as it is against the clock.

0:21:150:21:17

You're worrying about the time ticking away

0:21:170:21:19

as well as getting the answer. Let's have the second game, please.

0:21:190:21:22

Well done, Chris. You added some valuable seconds there.

0:21:220:21:25

Here's your second game.

0:21:250:21:27

Use the clues to work out the position of a particular animal.

0:21:300:21:34

The clues describe the animals from your perspective.

0:21:340:21:37

Have a trial run.

0:21:370:21:38

JOHN READS

0:21:420:21:45

Oh, wow.

0:21:490:21:50

Where do you think Lottie might be?

0:21:540:21:56

-It's my perspective, isn't it?

-Yeah.

-We said this earlier.

0:21:590:22:03

Erm...

0:22:030:22:04

So, Lottie must be on the right.

0:22:080:22:10

-You're saying 'right'?

-Yeah.

0:22:100:22:12

Let's have a look and see.

0:22:120:22:14

Yeah, you're absolutely correct.

0:22:140:22:16

-Yeah.

-Yeah.

-Are you ready for that?

-Yes!

0:22:160:22:19

Right, off we go, please, Brain.

0:22:190:22:20

You have 45 seconds to answer three questions correctly.

0:22:200:22:23

Remember, I'll only accept your first answer.

0:22:230:22:26

Your game starts now.

0:22:260:22:28

It's that on the right.

0:22:360:22:37

On the right.

0:22:370:22:39

No, on the left. Next one.

0:22:390:22:41

30 seconds left.

0:22:430:22:44

20 seconds.

0:22:530:22:55

-You can pass if you want.

-Left.

0:22:550:22:57

Left, you're saying. Is that right?

0:22:570:22:59

No, it was 'right'.

0:22:590:23:00

Here comes the last one.

0:23:000:23:01

Ten seconds left.

0:23:040:23:05

-Centre.

-In the centre?

0:23:070:23:10

Yes, well done. Yeah, good.

0:23:100:23:12

Brain, I think you managed to...perplex him a little.

0:23:120:23:16

I did, didn't I?

0:23:160:23:17

But he still managed to get valuable seconds for the final.

0:23:170:23:20

Chris, you added nine seconds in that Zone,

0:23:200:23:24

which means, No Direction, you have finished with a grand total

0:23:240:23:28

of 57 seconds in your Brain Bank.

0:23:280:23:31

Very good indeed.

0:23:310:23:32

Chris, I hope you enjoyed playing the game.

0:23:320:23:35

Please rejoin the team.

0:23:350:23:37

Well, we've finished the individual Zones now,

0:23:370:23:39

and it's time for our team to try to beat The Brain

0:23:390:23:42

one last time and take home some serious cash in today's final.

0:23:420:23:46

No Direction, you added an impressive 57 seconds

0:23:500:23:53

to your Brain Bank in the four opening Zones.

0:23:530:23:56

Your task, now, is to answer eight questions correctly,

0:23:560:23:58

that's two each, as quickly as you can.

0:23:580:24:01

Do that within your 57 seconds,

0:24:010:24:03

and you'll win today's jackpot of £3,000.

0:24:030:24:06

If you can't do that, there is still a chance to win some money

0:24:060:24:09

because The Brain has kindly given you another two minutes

0:24:090:24:12

in which to find the answers, but there is a catch.

0:24:120:24:15

As the time counts down, so does the money at the rate of £25 a second.

0:24:150:24:19

Take too long,

0:24:190:24:21

and both the time and the money will run out, leaving you with nothing.

0:24:210:24:24

Well, Wes, as team captain, you've chosen the order of play.

0:24:240:24:28

What's your reasoning behind that?

0:24:280:24:30

Well, I think it's all about how we start and how we finish today.

0:24:300:24:33

So, I picked Shaun for a strong start,

0:24:330:24:34

and, as team captain, if it all goes wrong,

0:24:340:24:36

I can take the blame at the end as the person who finishes.

0:24:360:24:39

Yeah, all your fault. You are the anchorman there.

0:24:390:24:42

Well, are you all ready? Because it is time to get serious.

0:24:420:24:45

Let's start today's final.

0:24:450:24:48

Brain, over to you.

0:24:480:24:50

You will only face questions from the games you've already seen today.

0:24:500:24:54

But for every game in the final, I will only accept your first answer.

0:24:540:24:58

No Direction, beat me if you can.

0:24:580:25:02

That is your challenge, and, as always,

0:25:020:25:04

we will start with the player on the left. That is you, Shaun.

0:25:040:25:07

I need two correct answers from you before we can pass down the line.

0:25:070:25:11

Understand, everybody?

0:25:110:25:13

The best of luck. Let's get underway.

0:25:130:25:15

Let's play the final.

0:25:150:25:17

Which wheel matches the one on the left?

0:25:200:25:22

C.

0:25:240:25:25

Correct.

0:25:250:25:26

Yellow, white, red.

0:25:290:25:32

Yes. Chris, what is the missing word?

0:25:320:25:34

Age.

0:25:410:25:43

Correct.

0:25:430:25:45

Solve the riddle.

0:25:450:25:46

Left.

0:25:480:25:49

No.

0:25:490:25:51

Turn left.

0:25:510:25:52

Turn left.

0:25:520:25:54

Turn left.

0:25:540:25:55

Which direction?

0:25:550:25:57

-HE MUMBLES

-East.

0:25:580:26:00

Yes. James, find the hidden word.

0:26:000:26:03

Fork.

0:26:060:26:08

Correct.

0:26:080:26:09

What's the connection?

0:26:090:26:11

-BUZZER

-Pass.

0:26:160:26:18

What number plate.

0:26:230:26:25

Six.

0:26:250:26:26

Correct.

0:26:260:26:27

Wes, which wheel matches

0:26:270:26:30

the one on the left?

0:26:300:26:32

D.

0:26:340:26:35

Solve the riddle.

0:26:380:26:40

-Right.

-Stop the clock.

0:26:420:26:44

THEY CHEER

0:26:440:26:47

Well, congratulations.

0:26:470:26:48

Eight correct answers, and you have won £2,325.

0:26:480:26:53

-So, how about that, Wes?

-That last one was a guess.

0:26:560:26:58

-THEY LAUGH

-A very good guess.

0:26:580:27:00

-It earned you a lot of money.

-Happy with that.

0:27:000:27:02

No, the team have done really well there.

0:27:020:27:04

I mean, that last round had a few fastballs.

0:27:040:27:06

The games were quicker and more difficult,

0:27:060:27:08

and everyone maintained their focus. It was good.

0:27:080:27:10

Well, The Brain was determined to catch you, but she didn't, did she?

0:27:100:27:13

Just wait till we catch her!

0:27:130:27:15

-How about that, Brain?

-SHE SIGHS

0:27:150:27:17

Oh, I thought I was going to be a high-flyer then,

0:27:170:27:19

but you boys have brought me back down to the ground

0:27:190:27:22

very safely, though, I may say.

0:27:220:27:24

-Congratulations.

-Yes, congratulations from all of us.

0:27:240:27:27

And thank you at home for watching today.

0:27:270:27:29

I hope you enjoyed playing along.

0:27:290:27:30

For now, though, it's goodbye from No Direction.

0:27:300:27:33

-Bye.

-Bye.

0:27:330:27:34

-Goodbye from Brain.

-Goodbye.

0:27:340:27:36

And it's goodbye from me. See you next time.

0:27:360:27:38

Before you go, let's see the answers to the questions

0:27:410:27:44

I set you at home at the start of the show.

0:27:440:27:46

Solve the riddle.

0:27:470:27:49

The answer is...

0:27:520:27:54

Poppins is on the left.

0:27:540:27:56

And what about the second game? What number plate do you see?

0:27:560:28:00

The answer is...

0:28:050:28:06

three.

0:28:060:28:07

Whether you got these right or wrong,

0:28:070:28:09

you can always improve your intellect

0:28:090:28:12

by watching us next time on Beat The Brain.

0:28:120:28:15

John Craven hosts the quiz in which contestants and viewers face a mental fitness test set by the most exacting of task masters: the Brain. A team of four contestants must navigate a selection of tricky puzzles, fiendish logic problems and prickly posers in an effort to win a cash prize.

Four air traffic controllers based in Norfolk see if they can outwit the Brain and take off with the £3,000 jackpot.
